Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Princess Hotel San Juan
I had friends who stayed here and I stayed at the At Windchimes, their room and hotel was much nicer than ours and only slightly more expensive. When I go back, I will definitely stay at Coral Princess, it is a beautiful hotel, is very clean and the staff is friendly.
I had no knowledge of lodgings in Puerto Rico, so did some checking on the internet and our travel agent also did some research. I was very pleased with this property, it was very clean, had a very nice patio area and small pool area. The rooms are very adequate in size for two (unless you are used to extra large rooms), if you need a closet, that could be a problem. I felt the property was safe and there are good restaurants within a block plus a Walgren's Drug Store around the corner. I was very happy with the personnel, the property and the price.
Stayed there for 2 nights. The room was incredibly small, but it's a nice place with a good breakfast.
Enjoyed the Inn and Staff
We stayed a week before our cruise at this lovely Inn. And then after our cruise stayed an additional day, and it was like coming home! The staff is extremely friendly and informative. Booked an excursion with them and used Mary B. Tours...to the rain forest. We found the hotel to be clean and convienently located to many restuarants and to the beach...1 1/2 blks...around the corner. All of our requests, like clothes hangers, extra pillows, and towels..were completed without a hitch! The only thing we would recommend to the hotel is to keep the hot tub on the roof running at all times. The breakfast is good...offering cereals, breads, coffee, juice, fruit and milk. Also Ham and cheese slices. All in all, enjoyed this lovely Inn. K and L from MN
Royal treatment at the Coral Princess!
We loved the Coral Princess. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were sparkling clean, nicely outfitted, and good value for the price. We didn't mind having a small room because we enjoyed all the public spaces there- quiet and cozy living room, lush patio courtyard, rooftop getaway. Continental breakfast was delicious with fresh pastry and other tasty options. We liked its proximity to the beach and lots of good restaurants. While the neighborhood feels busy, this hotel has its own zone of tranquility. Highly recommended!!
Combine this with a night at El Convento in Old San Juan and you'll experience two lively areas of the city- and sleep peacefully at night.
A Charming Boutique Hotel in the Condado
This is a charming little boutique hotel in the Condado section of San Juan. The location is excellent, a block away from the shops and entertainment venues of Ashford Avenue and about two blocks from the beach. We had a penthouse room (one of three that share the top floor of the hotel) which featured a large bedroom, walk in closet, twin sinks in the bathroom and a very large jucuzzi tub/shower. All three penthouse rooms share a common sitting room, dining room, office and spacious kitchen. There is a large outdoor deck just off the balcony with table, chairs, lounges and an outdoor hot tub. Our room rented for approximately $210 a night. Our friends had one of the regular rooms which rented for approximately $125.00 a night. It was a bit on the small side but adequate and very competitively priced given what is available elsewhere. Cab fare to the airport is $16.00 and $12.00 to Old San Juan. The Inn is kept in immaculate condition (very clean) with some really charming common areas and interesting art work. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Only complaint was the continental breakfast which was not in keeping with the quality of the rest of the hotel (Costco sliced deli ham and individually wrapped cheese slices, small pastries (which were stale), and Costco yogurt). Save your appetite and eat at one of the many nearby breakfast venues on Ashford Ave! Also -- if you are looking for a place to eat dinner, I highly recommend La Chaumiere at 367 Tetuan St. in Old San Juan.
A charming hotel with a great location
We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the Coral Princess Inn in the Condado area of San Juan. This small inn offers alot at a very reasonable price. The penthouse 2 was lovely, well decorated, and spacious, with a nice balcony, and easy access to the outdoor hot tub (as well as having a wonderful indoor Jacuzzi). The breakfast room was lovely, outdoors in a shaded courtyard and surrounded by plants. We found the front desk staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The snorkeling trip to Icacos on the Spread Eagle II, recommended by the inn, made our trip to Puerto Rico very special. The locaton was excellent, within walking distance of many of the Condado restaurants recommended by our guide books, and close to the beach as well as Ashford Avenue for shopping and evening walks. The old city of San Juan is conveniently close by, and easily reachable by bus, taxi, or rental car. The Condado area offers advantages over the Isla Verde area, in being away from the noise of the airport and closer to good restaurants and shopping, and the old city.
We have two recommendations. The complimentary breakfast offers yogurts, white bread, jams, coffee, orange juice, ham and cheese, and sometimes pastry, but would be truly outstanding with the addition of tropical fruits, local breads (such as pan agua), and pastries each day. Also, we found the lack of a door on the shower area in the penthouse 2 suite, an inconvience for a family.
The Coral Princess is a great little find
Very charming boutique style hotel in a great location in the Condado just a two minute walk from the beach and many very good restaraunts within walking distance. Super clean and very reasonably priced. The staff is quite nice and willing to help you make arrangements for day trips or offer dining suggestions. If you have a car, parking is very limited but they have arrangements with another hotel nearby at a charge of $8.00 per day. Rooms are done in a minimal modern decor but quite comfortable. Our only complaint was hot water being inconsistenly available in the shower but that seems to be the norm at many hotels in San Juan. We would certainly stay there again.
Jewel of a Hotel(a real find!)
My stay was excellent.The location ,cleanliness,staff,complimentary breakfast buffet,and pool were all very good!The rooms were new and deco/modern.A small waterfall pool in the back.Marble floors and jaccuzi tubs were a nice touch.Located at THE most happening part of the beach.When we arrived we were so glad to have picked the right hotel in the right spot!The next time we go we will stay again!!Did I mention its in the greatest location ?A New York guest
Cute and quaint
this quaint little inn is nice place to stay. The owner mildred is very helpful and resourseful. we visited the island on june 23 the room was beautifully decorated just a little small with everything you need. the beach is less than a two minute walk all the tours pick you up from the hotel which they can arrange for you so if your looking for a reasonable safe and comfortable place to stay this is it from hollis&hempstead.

... day! I had my phone on me, and according to my phone, I walked about 10 miles!
For me, this trip is allowing me the experience of interacting with my students outside of being "the teacher." I think many of them are realizing that I'm just not the teacher all of the time. It's also awesome to watch these students thrive in a new world other than their own. This is truly what this trip is about as it gets everyone out of their comfort zone and into new experiences!
... past some local birds they have on display into the lobby. Right past the lobby there is a restaurant that sits over a man made pond where there is thousands of fishes. When you walk up to the edge they all sworm to you and pop out of the water as if to say Hi.
The hotel room was simply beautiful, spacious and clean. The highlights is the pool and beach. The pool is huge, and the beach is maybe 30 feet away the ...

Being completely stuffed by the sandwiches, we stumbled back to the hotel, planning to go for a late night swim. But walking into that air conditioning after the humid night air made us change our minds and we ended up staying in, reading and watching some TV before turning in. Oscar fell asleep around 10, but I found myself still on West Coast time and ended up staying up watching Netflix until 1:30am before I was able to fall asleep
... Our hotel is located very well and the building looks nice. Our room has no windows (which we knew when we booked it), but it is clean and big enough for 2. The staff is very friendly. We decided to quickly change from our trekking shoes to flip flops and go for a stroll while the sun was still out. Old San Juan is a Unesco World Heritage site, and when you see all the streets with the ...
... you can sample bit sized food from other restaurants on other Carnival ships. Tonights offering is from the Blue Iguana (on the Carnival Dream). There is a chicken, avocado and lime tortilla soup which is really lovely and zingy and a roast pork with green chilli salsa, aged cotija cheese tortilla. Lovely little pre dinner nibbles.
But i'm eager to check out the dining room and menu. The ...
